ZeroBounce Releases The Email List Decay Report for 2023

SANTA BARBARA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 28, 2023 / ZeroBounce announces the release of The Email List Decay Report for 2023, unveiling the latest statistics about the lifecycle of email databases. In the report, ZeroBounce shares data trends it gathered after validating more than six billion email addresses.

ZeroBounce announces the release of The Email List Decay Report for 2023.

The findings are eye-opening for email marketers and companies relying on email for vital communications. At least 22.71% of the average email list degrades annually, the ZeroBounce report shows. At 20.19%, invalid email addresses made up most of the obsolete data processed by the email validation and deliverability company. Also prevalent were catch-all, disposable, abuse, spam trap, and toxic email addresses. In total, only 57.21% of all the emails ZeroBounce verified were valid and safe to use.

“Any database can acquire poor-quality email addresses which cause email deliverability to plummet,” says ZeroBounce founder and CEO Liviu Tanase. “Reaching the inbox is getting increasingly difficult, and using a healthy email database is a must. This report paints a clear picture of how fast email data degrades. The good news is that email marketers can stay on top of their email list health so they can be in the inbox and increase revenue.”

The Email List Decay Report for 2023 also reveals how likely users are to misspell their email addresses when filling out a sign-up or registration form. In just one year, ZeroBounce detected more than 10 million typos via its real-time email verification API. The software thus prevents potential bounces and continues to ensure companies build more reliable lead acquisition programs.

“Letting go of obsolete data makes an email list more responsive and more likely to convert. While so many companies focus on quantity, those who pay attention to data quality will see a boost in email ROI,” says ZeroBounce Chief Operating Officer Brian Minick.

To create the report, ZeroBounce analyzed the data it processed between January and December 2022. The benchmarks apply to companies of all sizes, across various industries, as ZeroBounce’s customers range from solo business owners to Fortune 500 companies.

‫مؤتمر بلوكتشين لايف بدبي يؤكد على المستقبل الواعد للعملات الرقمية مع قدرة منصاتها على إثبات الاحتياطات الرقمية

  • مستجدات مع بعد عام 2022: وضعت منصات تداول العملات الرقمية معايير عالية لتعزيز أطر الشفافية تتمثل في القدرة على إثبات احتياطات الأصول الرقمية بنسبة 100%
  • تشكل منصات التداول اللامركزية جزءًا مهمًا من النظام البيئي الصحي من خلال دعم المتداولين على المدى المتوسط والطويل
  • باي بايت كأي منصة تداول مركزية تدعو لتعزيز التكامل مع تقنيات الويب 0 لدعم معاملات المستخدمين اليومية

دبي، الإمارات العربية المتحدة، 28 فبراير 2023: أكد بين زو الرئيس التنفيذي لمنصة تداول العملات الرقمية باي بيت، أن العملات الرقمية باتت على مشارف مستقبلها الواعد والحافل بالإمكانات الهائلة، لاسيما مع تحول مزايا الموثوقية والشفافية اليوم إلى حجر أساس لأي عمل ناجح في هذا المضمار. وأضاف زو بأن التكنولوجيا ستدعم جهود استعادة الثقة في العملات الرقمية، موضحاً أن منصات التداول المرخصة تمتلك جميع المقومات الضرورية للتفوق على المؤسسات المالية التقليدية على مستوى الشفافية.

وعلى هامش مشاركته في جلسة حوارية انعقدت ضمن فعاليات مؤتمر بلوكتشين لايف بدبي يوم الإثنين، تطرق زو إلى سبل الاستفادة من البيئة المفتوحة وقدرات المصادقة المباشرة المقدمة من التقنيات اللامركزية. وأشار زو إلى أن شبكات البلوكتشين باتت جزءاً من الحلول المتاحة في عالمنا اليوم، إذ يمكن للحلول المقوّمة بالعملات الرقمية دعم القطاع المالي في مواجهة الأشكال التقليدية والجديدة من مخاطر الاحتيال. وشدد زو على أن منصات تداول العملات الرقمية قادرة على تقديم إثباتات مباشرة على احتياطاتها من الأصول الرقمية، وهو ما يتخطى معايير الشفافية المألوفة لدى المؤسسات المالية التقليدية.

وتلتزم منصة باي بيت بإدارة أموال المستخدمين وفق أرقى أطر الشفافية والنزاهة، وهو ما يدفعها لتقديم إثباتات مباشرة وواضحة حول احتياطاتها من الأصول الرقمية عبر نموذج “شجرة ميركل” Merkle Tree المصممة لهدف محدد، وهو تقديم هياكل بيانات تتيح التحقق الآمن والفعال والمتسق من البيانات. ويمكن للمستخدمين استخدام رموز مخصصة لهم للتحقق من تسجيل أصولهم كالتزامات في محافظ باي بيت ضمن شبكتها وصولاً لأدق التفاصيل.

وقال زور: “بالنسبة لي، فإن مثل هذه التكنولوجيا المدعومة بالبلوكتشين تمثل حلاً حقيقياً للاتهامات الواردة باستمرار حول الأخطاء السائدة في مسائل التشفير والانتهاكات في القطاع المالي على نطاق أوسع. ويمكن لنموذج إثبات احتياطات الأصول الرقمية الجديد في القطاع طمأنة المستخدمين حيال أصول التداول المتاحة ومنحهم اطلاعاً شاملاً عليها، وهو ما يمهد الطريق لتحقيق التوازن بين ديناميكيات القوة التقليدية بين العملاء ومقدمي الخدمات المالية”.

وتطرق زو إلى الدور الهام لمنصات تداول العملات الرقمية مع سعي القطاع للخروج من تحديات عام 2022.  وفي الوقت الذي تُراعى فيه الاعتبارات الأمنية إلى أبعد الحدود، كشف زو عن الأسباب التي لا تزال تدفع المتداولين نحو منصات التداول المركزية، موضحاً أنها السيولة العميقة والبنية الرقمية المتينة ذات الدقة العالية.

ومشيراً إلى العملاء من المؤسسات والمتداولين الخبراء، قال زو: “لاتزال منصات التداول المركزية خيارهم المفضل إلى حد كبير نظراً لمزايا السيولة التي تتيحها. ولا يمكن بكل بساطة ممارسة نشاطات التداول بأحجام كبيرة عبر منصات لامركزية نظراً للقيود التي تواجهها بناها الرقمية”. واقترح زو أنه بإمكان الباحثين عن الاستثمار في العملات الرقمية على المديين المتوسط والطويل التفكير بشكل الجاد في المنصات اللامركزية.

واختتم زو: “يتمحور دورنا – ودور أي منصة تداول مركزية – حول الاستعداد على أكمل وجه للتبني الشامل والمرتقب لإمكانات البلوكتشين وتقنيات الويب 3.0. وأنا على ثقة بقدرات هذا القطاع الواعد، لأنه في غضون عامين، ستتجلى أسباب ذاك التبني الشامل، وسنرى الجميع يشرعون في استخدام العملات الرقمية”.

Crypto Sets Higher Standards for Proof of Reserves for Traditional Finance: Bybit CEO

  • The new norms after 2022: crypto exchanges have set a high bar in transparency with 100% verifiable proof of reserves
  • DEXs form an important part of a healthy ecosystem by supporting medium and long-term traders
  • Bybit has a calling as a CEX: delivering seamless integration into Web3 for everyday users

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – Media OutReach – 28 February 2023 – The future of the crypto industry is one step closer to its full potential, now trust and transparency is at the forefront, said Bybit CEO Ben Zhou. According to Zhou, technology will lead the way in restoring trust in crypto, and legitimate exchanges have what it takes to outperform traditional financial institutions in terms of transparency.

Speaking as part of a panel discussion at Blockchain Life 2023 in Dubai on Monday, Zhou proposed leveraging the open nature and real-time verification that decentralized technology offers. Blockchain is part of the solution, and crypto-native solutions can help armor the financial industry against traditional and new forms of fraud risk. He noted that crypto exchanges are able to offer real-time, verifiable proof of reserves, which is far and above the transparency traditionally offered by financial institutions.

Bybit is committed to managing user funds with the utmost transparency and integrity, which is why it has real-time proof of reserves with a purpose-built Merkle Tree. Users can use their Merkle Leaf code to check that their assets are recorded as liabilities in Bybit’s on-chain wallets down to the granular details.

For Zhou, this kind of technology — powered by blockchain — is the real solution to the constant news of malfeasance in the crypto and wider financial sector. The new industry norm of proof of reserves can offer users more peace of mind and visibility into exchanges’ assets, and this has tilted the conventional power dynamics between the customers and financial service providers, he said.

Zhou went on to talk about the role of crypto exchanges as the industry moves forward from a challenging 2022. While security considerations are a given, Zhou revealed why CEXs are still preferred by serious traders: deep liquidity and powerful infrastructure with millisecond precision.

Referring to institutional clients and professional traders, Zhou said that “centralized exchanges are pretty much their only choice simply because of the liquidity. And you simply can’t do high frequency trading on a decentralized exchange (DEX) due to infrastructure limitations.” However, Zhou suggested that those interested in medium-to-long term trades could consider DEXs as an option.

“Our role — and that of any centralized exchange — is to be ready for mass adoption and be the gateway to Web3 when it happens. So, I still believe in the industry,” Zhou added. “In two years, you will see signs of mass adoption. Your uncles, your aunties, your cousins will all start to use crypto,” he said.

Sharjah Ruler attends Rare Syndromes Associated with Disability conference

SHARJAH, 27th February, 2023 (WAM) — H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, today attended the launch of the Rare Syndromes Associated with Disability (RSAD) conference at the Student Forum of the University of Sharjah.

The conference is being organised by the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services (SCHS) in collaboration with the University of Sharjah and the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP).

The primary goals of this ground-breaking conference are to increase awareness among medical professionals about the most recent advances in medical, practical, educational, and rehabilitative practises for people with rare syndromes associated with disabilities, and to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas among those working in the field.

Director of Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services Mona Abdul Karim Al Yafei spoke at the conference’s opening. She thanked His Highness, the Ruler of Sharjah, for his patronage of the conference, which brings attention to a part of society that is often overlooked and receives only limited help in the form of education and rehabilitation.

“We hope that this conference will be a watershed moment in the methodology of dealing with rare syndromes associated with disability and interest in scientific research to provide suitable solutions about the challenges that some may face with regard to diagnosis and how to transmit experience and knowledge about the syndrome to families,” Al Yafei said.

Sheikha Jameela bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Director-General of SCHS, has directed and overseen the planning and execution of this conference to highlight the local, Arab, and global role of the City for Humanitarian Services through initiatives to introduce everything new, share experiences, and highlight the best international scientific practices in this field.

Dr. Hamid Majul Al Nuaimi, Chancellor of the University of Sharjah, highlighted the importance of the conference’s topic and goals in his opening remarks, noting that it represents a scientific precedent and aims to raise awareness of the most cutting-edge Arab and international practises for supporting and rehabilitating people with rare syndromes, thereby improving the quality of their lives and the lives of their families.

Dr. Hussain Abdul Rahman Al Rand, Assistant Under-Secretary for the Public Health Sector at MoHAP, delivered a speech in which he noted many rare diseases go unnoticed because they do not affect a sizeable portion of the population, and he emphasised that everyone, regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic position, or disease, has the right to receive treatment and care.

On the sidelines of the main event, the Ruler of Sharjah visited the conference’s supporting technology expo, where cutting-edge tools for accommodating a wide range of disabilities were on display.

The conference employs a hybrid online and in-person approach to present cutting-edge research and practices in the areas of medicine, education, counselling, and the arts.

The event was attended by several officials.

BEEAH receives ‘Blueprint of the Future’ award, as first fully AI-integrated building in Middle East

SHARJAH, 28th February, 2023 (WAM) — The BEEAH Headquarters in Sharjah, the first fully AI-integrated building in the Middle East, has just received the OpenBlue Pioneer “Blueprint of the Future” award from Johnson Controls, the global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings.

Operating at LEED platinum standards and targeting net-zero emissions, the BEEAH headquarters uses an on-site solar power plant to meet a large portion of its power requirements. An on-site grey water recycling plant and water-efficient systems for landscaping applications also ensure ultra-low water consumption.

BEEAH joins a select group of award winners using the Johnson Controls OpenBlue suite of connected building solutions to set new benchmarks for smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings in a net-zero age.

Set against the backdrop of the Sharjah desert, the new BEEAH headquarters was designed to look like intersecting sand dunes, blending in with the desert landscape. The unique structure is fully integrated with artificial intelligence (AI)-driven solution powered by OpenBlue to enable energy efficiency, friction-free access and security, and connected building management and employee service systems.

Powered by Johnson Controls’ OpenBlue digital technology, the seamless interaction within the building provides personalised experiences for visitors, employees and management. A mobile app offers a virtual concierge to order beverages, book meeting rooms, and manage IT requests.

The rooms automatically adjust light and temperature settings to make occupants as healthy and comfortable as possible, dynamically responding to movement and setting personal preferences. Facial recognition and automated security allow people to move seamlessly through the building, while also monitoring for safety.

The “Blueprint of the Future” award was presented by George Oliver, Chairman and CEO of Johnson Controls, to Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of BEEAH Group.

“BEEAH Group has set a new benchmark for sustainable workspaces of the future, especially in addressing the particular challenges of building sustainably in a hot, arid climate. The BEEAH Headquarters is an iconic piece of architecture that provides a key blueprint for offices in a net zero world. We congratulate BEEAH for showing how powerful the combination of visionary thinking and digital building technology can be in creating spaces that serve people and the planet,” said Oliver.

Al Huraimel, in turn, said, “Powered by next-generation technologies that are integrated with energy and water-efficient systems, the building demonstrates how technology can help us accelerate towards sustainability targets. While preserving resources and protecting the environment, the building inspires people inside and out. We believe the BEEAH Headquarters is the ideal example of the smart built architecture in tomorrow’s sustainable cities, where environmental responsibility and quality of life are paramount.”

Sharjah has four UNESCO World Heritage potential sites

SHARJAH, 28th February, 2023 (WAM) — The Sharjah Archaeology Authority revealed early this month that four important Sharjah ancient sites had been added to the preliminary UNESCO World Heritage List.

In preparation for the final submission of the cultural landscape file for the central region, the authority has recorded all the following: the site of Mleiha: the pre-Islamic period in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula, and the sites of stone inscriptions in Khatum Melaha and Khor Fakkan, and the site of Wadi Helo: evidence of copper mining in the Arabian Peninsula, and the site of the prehistoric cultural scene in Faya.

“The registration of these sites is the result of a series of studies conducted by the authority in collaboration with academic experts and specialists to assess their cultural value and archaeological importance at the global level, as these studies also dealt with historical value and state of preservation reports,” said Dr. Sabah Jassim, Director-General of the Sharjah Archaeology Authority.

Dr. Jassim confirmed that the preliminary list of archaeological sites, which began in 2021, is part of the authority’s strategy to sustain and preserve the emirate’s tangible cultural heritage and promote these sites worldwide.

The initiative included researching the features of the emirate’s cultural heritage locations and showing their cultural worth, ensuring their designation as world heritage sites. The locations fulfil the World Heritage standards by achieving one of the ten criteria and demonstrating exceptional universal value.

Inclusion on the UNESCO provisional list is considered a prerequisite for inclusion on the World Heritage final list and a factor in encouraging future tourist business at these sites.

Faya’s prehistoric cultural landscape

The Faya Mountains are an exceptional illustration of a desert environment during the Stone Age, dating early human habitation from the start of the Middle Stone Age until the Neolithic Period, during shifting weather conditions in the Arabian Peninsula.

Geological and climatic investigations of the site’s history strata revealed the continuation of human habitation 210,000 years ago. The historical discoveries at the site date the evolution of settlement and residents from groups of hunters to migratory herdsmen with unique burial rituals, which helped scientists create a novel view of the nature of human adaptation to the environment.

Climate change cycles every 20,000 years have led the area to vacillate between a desert and a wet environment, with water collecting in lakes and flowing along the river channels stretching from the Hajar Mountains to the Faya.

The geomorphological characteristics along the Faye Mountains record these events and changes, which aid in understanding this pivotal era in the region’s past. The extraordinary mix of available water sources, raw materials, and occupied caverns made Al-Faya – the world’s earliest inhabited desert environment, filling a knowledge void in understanding early human development and adaptation in the Arabian Peninsula desert.

Pre-Islamic era in southern Arabia, known as Mleiha

The settlement of Mleiha marked the pinnacle of old culture in this area during the pre-Islamic era, with a cultural impact extending from the third century BC to the third century AD.

The historical findings verified the cultural worth reflected by Mleiha’s foreign connections and its vital role in the camel trade as a significant component of the trade network that connected the coastlines of the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea across the Arabian Peninsula.

Maliha minted its coins, and its rulers and merchants amassed wealth that allowed them to own the best camels and horses, as well as build tombs in the shape of towers as an expression of their high status, as evidenced by the discovery of funerary practices and funerary architecture, which constitute a remarkable testament to this civilisation and its role in human history in the region over six centuries.

The graves of camels and horses are regarded as the most beautiful in the area, indicating this site’s critical role in disseminating this type of funeral practice in the region.

Khatum Melaha and Khor Fakkan’s rock carvings

The rock engravings in the emirate of Sharjah were found as the first rock art location in the Hajar Mountains area at the turn of the century.

The consecutive proposal records hundreds of writings found and engraved on gabbro rocks at Khatum Melaha in Kalba, Mudifi, Luluyah, and Wadi Shie in Khor Fakkan. These writings were estimated to date from the fifth millennium BC until a few decades ago, demonstrating the historical consistency of rock art from the early eras to contemporary times over seven thousand years.

The degree of intricacy of these writings and the presence of distinct designs not found in other rock inscriptions in the area point to the Province of Sharjah’s extraordinary rock art group.

The emirate’s rock engraving is also distinctive in that prehistoric man depended on boulders isolated from permanent stony formations as bases for this art.

Rock art in the Arabian Peninsula offers an essential foundation for understanding past societies and a massive visual collection that can be used to better understand political and economic events, customs, and religious views, among many other aspects of past societies.

Wadi Helo: Copper mining in the Arabian Peninsula during the Bronze Age

During the Neolithic to Bronze Age transition, Wadi Helo contains the first signs of mining in southern Arabia. The historical site in Wadi Helo is an integrated testament to local copper mining methods and the connection of the valley’s ancient occupants with the environment through their adaptation to the site’s beautiful geological and topographical factors.

When compared to metals produced in nearby locations, Wadi Helo copper is distinguished by its high purity, which can sometimes approach nearly 100%. Historical evidence suggests that Wadi Helo was part of a vast network of Bronze Age trade exchanges between locations throughout the Arabian Gulf. Wadi Helo was the primary source of unrefined copper for other bronze-producing sites in the area, including Tell Abraq, Kalbaa, and Umm al-Nar.

The rock engravings spanned the valley’s terrain and documented the passage of people and goods across the valley to the eastern and western coastlines. The etching of the boat in the valley’s depths and the unique carvings on swords representing the bronze era attest to the site’s connection to the local and regional trade network.

SEC issues decision regulating exemption from traffic fines

SHARJAH, February 28, 2023 (WAM) — H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Salem bin Sultan Al Qasimi, the Deputy Ruler of Sharjah and Deputy Chairman of the Sharjah Executive Council (SEC), chaired a meeting at the Sharjah Ruler’s office today to discuss various government issues across different sectors. The council explored ways to improve government services and enhance the emirate’s achievements through development projects and initiatives.

During the meeting, a decision was made to regulate the percentage of exemption granted to traffic violators in the Emirate of Sharjah. The objective of this decision is to establish a mechanism that can help regulate the use of services for deducting amounts from traffic fines and early payments, as well as promote compliance with traffic laws. The decision will be implemented from April 1, 2023.

As per the decision, traffic violators who pay their fines within 60 days from the date of violation will receive a 35 percent discount on their fines, including financial fines, vehicle impound fees, and all delay fines. If the violators pay after 60 days but before one year from the date of the violation, the discount will be reduced to 25 percent, and the exemption will only cover the financial fine.
